Why go Polyurethane?
Suspension bushings are one of the most highly stressed components fitted to a motor car. They undergo enormous strains in the most arduous of conditions with no maintenance or lubrication.
The material standard bushings are manufactured from is a rubber compound containing natural products which deteriorate with age. It becomes softer and more pliable, resisting the forces placed on it less and less. Therefore allowing more and more movement of suspension components and offering less and less control over the suspension geometry.
This causes excessive tire wear, braking instability and poor handling. This is the single biggest reason you can instantly tell the difference driving a three year old car and a new one. However even new cars will benefit from Powerflex bushings! Because of their superior design they offer much more effective control of the suspension components to a much greater extent than normal rubber items.
With the technological advances in this material it has been possible to overcome the common problem associated with harder bushings, which is increased noise. By correctly engineering the polyurethane compound, bushings can be made 25-30% stiffer than new rubber items but with exactly the same noise absorbing properties.
Option 1: You can remove and send in your control arms for us to install the Powerflex bushing upgrade. Once we complete this, we will ship back your same arms to you.
Option 2: You can purchase a set of control arms already equipped with the Powerflex bushing upgrade. A $200 core charge applies for the set of four and once we receive back yours we will refund the core charge.
Important Note: If you plan to send us in your control arms to have the bushing upgrade installed, please make sure to send them complete & not damaged. If any control arm received is damaged, bent or cannot be used for installation we will contact you before proceeding. This also applies to CORE items. Once completed, the control arms will be shipped back via GROUND shipping unless otherwise noted on the order. If you wish to receive them back faster than ground shipping, you will be quoted return shipping method of your choice.
Core items must be shipped back within 15 days of date of delivery of new items. No core refund will be applied if we do not receive them back within the designated time period.
